there through the ups and downs and through the hardest times of my life. judy smith as well as other people who have contributed in my comeback. once again, i know everybody is thinking why philadelphia, first off i think it's one of the flagship organizations, great tradition, great staff, great organization. it's a great place and i just want to be a part of a great tradition and give this team every opportunity to win a superbowl. this is -- i'm considering this my first year, my first year back. i'm not trying to come out and -- i'm just trying to fit where ever i can, get acclimated and just do whatever i can to help this team succeed and reach the superbowl. with that said, i know i probably left some people out
11:10am
who i need to send a special thanks to. i'm sorry. but you all know who you are. and i will continue to serve in our community, continue to do all of the right things, and continue to help young individuals out in this world from going down the same path that i went down. i'm excited about the opportunity. and with that said, i jut open it up for questions and i'll be more than happy to answer any of them. [ inaudible ] >> i addressed that i made poor judgment, bad decisions in my life and hi to reach a turning point. and prison definitely did it for me. but it was totally unnecessary and uncalled for.
11:11am
[ inaudible ] >> it's a surreal feeling right now. i couldn't envision it two years ago. i was optimistic that it would happen one day, but i knew it would be a long process. and we as a people, we fear the unknown. and i'm just ppy that i have the opportunity now, i'm glad that coach reed and the rest of the organization stepped forward, donovan was very instrumental in that and i'm glad i got the opportunity at a second chance. and i won't disappoint. [ inaudible ] >> i've been away from the game for two years and i have to start somewherement i have to crawl before i walk. i can't imagine going out after a two-year hiatus, going out and trying to be a starter for
11:12am
a football team. i just don't think it could happen. with as much god-given ability that i have, i don't think i would be able to do it. i think i could, but i wouldn't risk it. and i need time to get my feet wet and get acclimated, like i said before. so i think -- i thought this was the perfect situation, the perfect scenario, and i can come in and i can learn from donovan, as one of the premier quarterbacks in the game, one of the best at it. and everything that he's learned, and the way he's been polished comes from coach reid, so i want to get with those two and do as much as i can to become a complete quarterback. and i have time to do it.
11:13am
[ inaudible ] >> i was wrong for what i did. everything that happened at that point in time in my life was wrong. and it was unnecessary. and to this day i can't understand why i was involve the in such pointless activeity and why did i risk so much dependent on my career and i was a naive to a lot of things, but i figure if i can help more animals than i hurt, than i'm contributing, and i'm doing my part. [ inaudible ] >> i think everybody deserves a second chance. we all have issues and we all
11:14am
deal with certain things and we all have our own reasons in our life and i think as long as you're willing to come back and do it the right way and do the right things and that you're committed, then i think you deserve it. but you only get one shot at a second chance and i'm conscious of that. >> you've been listening to a live news conference from michael vick, who has just signed with the philadelphia eagles to a $1.6 million deal one year deal with a option for a second after serving time in federal prison on dogfighting charges. >> and we'll continue to stream this live on myfoxdc.com. gold metal swimmer michael phelps is making headlines this morning. the olympic star was involved in a traffic accident last night. police say he was driving an suv that collided with another car, at an intersection near downtown baltimore. no one in the car was injured. driver of the other car was shaken up and toteen to a local

we have an update on the former alexandria police chief in court today on dui charges. david baker pled guilty this morning. it stems from an accident in arlington last month. he resigned as chief days later. he will have to serve a five day jail sentence beginning tonight, his license is suspended for one year and he will have to pay a fine. and we also have live pictures to bring you on that escaped prisoner search that we first told you about at the top of the hour. this is going on right now in the howard county area near anne arundel county. at about 11:30 last night a deputy was transporting a prisoner from the courthouse back to jail when he escaped. did metro jump the gun over a picture of a bus driver on the phone. a blogger snapd it last month and claimed the bus was moving, but the driver's union says there is a story behind the
11:20am
picture. right now that driver is on leave. her union says the bus was not moving. the driver only used her cell phone to call in a malfunction because the two-way radio on the bus was broken. the union says a recording of that phone call exists. >> she used the cell phone because the bus was broke, i think that's okay. get the facts first before you make a decision. >> i think if you were driving the bus on the cell phone, that's wrong. she should have stopped and goten off and radioed for help and just put the cell phone away. >> metro's zero tolerance policy comes after photos of drivers and train operators that were tempting, sleeping and even reading a book. an faa air traffic controller and supervisor are on leave after the collision over the hudson river. the controller handling the small plane was talking on the phone at the time of the accident and the supervisor wasn't in the building as required. the employee's action don't appear to have contributed to
11:21am
the accident itself. president clinton says the g.o.p. promotes fear over health care. because they have no political clout to fight it. and that fear has caused chaos at town halls all across the country and president obama may face some of those angry crowds at a town hall today in belgrade montana. a big opposition rally is planned nearby with about -- nearby with 500 expected to show up. a reporter had a sitdown with the president and he's only 11 years old and won this interview with the president. >> he's lucky. damon weaver became an internet sensation during the campaign as he followed the president hoping for an interview. the president fielded questions about his basketball skills, bullying and life in the white house. take a listen. >> what is it like being president of the united states? >> well it's very exciting.
11:22am
it's a lot of work and there are times where you get a little warn down. but every day you have the possibility, the ability of helping other people. and if you can do that -- >> weaver signed out just like he did when the interview with joe biden and he asked the president to be his home boy and the president said absolutely. to see the interview, go to myfoxdc.com. we're moving to on to another story -- on to another story with a funny man here in the studio. his name is matt he'ser. he has a show coming to town and we'll tell you all about it and where you can catch his act this weekend. explain.

11:29am
11:30am
11:31am
we're following several developing stories today. this is over howard county near the anne arundel county line. a sheriff's deputy last night was transported a prisoner from the courthouse and the prisoner over powered the deputy and the search continues for him as he
11:32am
got away. and reaction after michael vick has signed with the philadelphia eagles. he hasn't played since 2006. he was convicted in 2007 of conspiracy and running a dogfighting operation. he recently got out of federal prison and he is currently under a conditional suspension with the nfl. he can play in the final two preseason games, but he could sit anywhere from 1-6 weeks out once the regular season starts. >> and he said during the news conference a short time ago, he considered this his first year. he doesn't expect to jump right back in. >> he hasn't been playing football for a couple of years. got to get his football legs back. so the weather is not bad. it's a little humid and still summery with pay chance for an isolated shower and thunderstorm. but it could be in the mid to upper 90s. there is a live shot. and you can see a mix of sun and clouds across the area and it is dry. the only shower activity is well off to the south and east and we should be in for a drive afternoon.
11:33am
so i see a lot of bright spots in thforecast over the next couple of days. let's start with the all important beach forecast. and if you're headed to ocean city, it should be a nice weekend. a thundershower later today and late tomorrow afternoon and again i think they will be scattered. not expecting widespread thunderstorm activity. but there is a frontal system not too far off the coast that could fire up a shower or thunderstorm down at the beaches on both friday and saturday. sunday will be nice. 85 in bethany beach by sunday afternoon. so the best day of the weekend, sunday is it at re hob only and cape may new jersey as well. here in washington, 80 degrees. the humidity is %. winds out of the north and east at 6 miles per hour. pressure up 30.22 inches. and 80 here in washington. 78 in baltimore. 79 in frederick.
11:34am
warmer down to the south. fredericksberg is 82 and patuxent naval air station is 79 at this hour. so a decent looking start. we have low cloud cover and early morning fog and that has been slow to burn off but during the afternoon the trend is to introduce more sunshine, particularly in washington and off to the north and the west. most of the cloud cover and the shower activity at this hour is off to the south and east, down to virginia beach and east of richmond. here in washington, not a bad looking start. if you look carefully, really carefully, you could probably see a little bit of cloud cover out there so in and out of the clouds for the next couple of hours and more sunshine later this afternoon. we've just an isolated chance for a shower or thunderstorm. so as we get into the weekend here, the trend will be to dry out the atmosphere. i don't think we'll have too much chances for rain over the next couple of daysch the frontal system will fall apart off to the south and east and this area of high pressure -- winds out of the north and east will stick around for the next
11:35am
day or so. so the forecast looks good into the weekend. both saturday and sunday looks fairly quietch by sunday, about 90 or so. just a couple of showers in the forecast. i think most of us remain dry here in washington and baltimore this afternoon. mostly sunny, isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms. best chance down toward the beaches or well off to the west toward the mountains. 86 an afternoon high. winds out of the east at 5 miles per hour. 71 tonight and patchy late night fog. we had problems with some spots this morning. again, isolated thunderstorm. it should be beautiful tomorrow with an afternoon high of 88. warmer there for sunday, monday and tuesday but it will be dry with high temperatures about 90 so. kind of a tip -- a typical august weather. >> beautiful fair weather. >> and there is a fair going on. and you think of funnel cakes and rides.
11:36am
>> and you can find it at 61st montgomery county agricultural fair and holly is out there us this morning. i love the smell of a fair. >> which smells do you like? >> the pigs and the sheeps, right. >> reporter: are you guys done? i'm trying to talk here. i was saying, i love the smell of this horse right here. this is the kind that smells perfect. hi, butterscotch. are you ready for today at 3:00? it will open. the 61st annual montgomery county agricultural fair. don't you bat your eyelashes at me. this horse is part of the kid zone at community square. the community square has been a part of the fair for 15 years but they transformd it into the kid zone because of this woman -- debbie hogan. you've made it into a wild west show. tell me what you have going on.
